I don't use PC3000. As of now, the Rapidspar (excellent support) in combination with MRT (despite a lack of support) works 100 percent for me. Just added WD Marvel and it's a perfect combination.

I'm close to biting the bullet on a DD3000 English version but still waiting on feedback from anyone who owns one. Is this tool a best kept secret ?

Hello,
Observing the operation of the MRTLAB, I see that the voltage of the 5v drops to very low levels. I have been able to observe damage in the 5 volt power tracks to the tps2420, which is why I have jumped from the card's 5v power input to the 4 vin pins of the tps2420, with which I have achieved that the voltage of the 5V does not lower me as much and at the moment it works, I think that it is a failure in the size of the tracks of 5v. At the moment it works well for me.

Incidentally, the TPS2420 is configured for a 3 to 4 amp current draw. I think it is a design flaw, because if there is a short, a lot of current can pass through the tracks for a brief moment and can damage them slowly, it would have been better to configure it for a maximum of 2 Amps. It's just an opinion.

You may try with TRIAL version of UFS Explorer Professional recovery version 8.2, because new release have updates:
* Support of MRT DE Tasks:
- Added option to load Task from context menu of virtual task disk mapped to OS;
- Loading source name/ID information from the Task file;
- Loading map of defects associated with the Task file;
- Control of disk imaging via running MRT software (by ranges, files, maps etc.);

Another way to solve the problem of falling 5v is without touching the card, place a 7805 between the 12v and 5v gnd.

This would factor the heatsink for the 7805.
